Alliance releases party list

The Alliance Party's co-leaders take the two top spots on its party list of candidates to fight this year's election.

Party president and Auckland union organiser Jill Ovens, who will stand in the Manukau East electorate, takes the number one spot.

At number two is local government union organiser Paul Piesse.

The Alliance's general secretary Andrew McKenzie, a Christchurch barrister, is third on the list.

Fourth is Julie Fairey, an Auckland field officer for early childhood education.

Kane O'Connell, a Wellington-based research officer with the New Zealand University Students' Association, is at number five.

Len Richards is sixth, Jim Flynn seventh, at number eight is Victor Billot, nine is Margaret Jeune and at number 10 is Bob van Ruyssevelt.

The Alliance is polling well below the 5 per cent threshold needed to get MPs into Parliament without winning an electorate.
